3 prescriptions for the modern IT leader

One of the interesting facets of the digital revolution transforming the modern enterprise is that it’s creating new human challenges and opportunities. The IT head’s role is undergoing big changes due to technology, but those changes require new people skills every bit as much as technical chops.
